Additional Notes

Complaint: I signed with this firm as they told me I could keep my car and house in a chapter 7. I was finally told by **** I could only keep $2300 in a car. I signed with this company because over the phone I was told by a paralegal that in a Chapter 7 I could keep my car and my house everything. I was told this for months. Then that paralegal left and the firm got a new one that one named **** told me also for a while I could keep my car. Then one day she comes up and tells me I can only keep $2300. in car value. I did not want to give up my car. I asked ***** for a refund of the total amount of money that I gave them. As I had never sent anything in for them to work on for my case. She chuckled and said we don't give refunds. I have tried several times to get a refund. They have done nothing on my case I deserve a total refund. I was told by the fist paralegal that ****** the lawyer had a plan to keep my things and that she had a good relationship with the trusties. And finally I was told that I could not keep my car as promised. ***** the person in charge of the money told me I could not have a refund and that they did not give them. For these reasons I am filing a complaint against this firm. As I was mislead when I signed with them saying I could keep my car and my home. After all the times and this is over months of asking to speak to ****** mind you I never got a conseltation with anyone at the firm. I was always told she was busy and they gave me to someone else. Finally last week she called but I had to go out after a while. So I have never been able to speak to her or had a conseltation. I do believe I was mislead to sign with them and now they won't give me my money back.

Desired Settlement: I am asking for a full refund of 2140.00 that I paid them on the premise that I was mislead telling me I could keep both my Car and House. And the fact that I never sent any paper work into to them to start my case. They are not doing a bankruptcy for me they can't keep my money for doing nothing.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
Ms. ****** had a change in circumcumstances due to the upswing in the housing market in her area from the time she hired the firm to the time she was ready to file her case. As a result, she did not want to file Bankruptcy and has been issed a full refund in spite of the fact that we conducted a lot of work on the preparation of her case.

Consumer's Final Response
Yes, ****** Law Firm was honorable and returned my money back to me via check. I am happy with the outcome. Thank You, ****** ******

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
